Are there just two petrol pumps that sell 97 Octane in Calcutta?

BP Ladies Petrol Pump at Alipore and BP Camac Petrol Pump at Camac Street?

Hi all,

My 2 cents on a recent experience. Tanked up diesel (37 lts) in my new Ritz Vdi on 31st of last month from the HP pump in Alipore - beside Woodlands lane. Since then realised the car returning around 11kmpl (instead of 16). Took the car to workshop and got the ECU checked. All was well with the ECU. Finally the Works Manager came up with the theory of adulterated fuel and it was found to be correct. There was Kerosene in Diesel.

Regards,
Saurav

Giani service station, Jessore Road, near Michael Nagar

Dunno if this counts as trust or not, but when I left my credit card in the payment window couple of weeks earlier and almost left the station, the attendant came running to stop my car and return the card.
I almost exclusively use this station since I bought my car for their no-nonsense approach towards filling, and have nothing to complain about. What I like is that they ask yo uto check zero before filling and stop at autocut to ask you whether to fill additional fuel. I always stop at autocut for FE calculation.

Anyone has knowledge of any other trusted petrol pumps between Nagerbazaar and Barasat? Apart from dwaraka service station near Central Jail More and Giani on Jessore Road I don't know of any other pump serving good quality fuel. Earlier the IOC pump near Gouripur on Jessore Road used to serve good petrol but nowadays doesn't keep up to their name. Anyone has any pointers about other pumps serving out good fuel on this route.

Many of my friends here in kolkata have an impression that Indian Oil chains can only be trusted when it comes to purity.I see most of the bad incidents regarding purity have happened in HP & BP pumps only.

There is a BP Company owned pump on the Jadavpur thana - EM Bypass connector, about 300 metres before the EM Bypass (Kalikapur crossing) -- it is on the road when heading towards the bypass. Courteous staff (men and women) and the fuel seems fine. Plus they have an integrated billing machine that saves a minute as well as air top-up facility. I spoke to a few taxi drivers also who vouch for it. Please don't confuse this with an IOC pump 0.5 km before.

Dear all there is this BPCL petrol pump near chinar park,rajarhat. I live in this part of the city and whilst travelling through newtown fill up at this pump. This pump is situated on 211 bus route road. If coming from airport towards city centre 2 at chinar park crossing turn left towards rajarhat atghara;about 200metres into the road you'll spot the petrol pump. Fuel quality is quite good and the pump is clean and has good space. However sometimes they run out of regular fuel and force you to fill premium fuel(happened only once to me out of the 50times I've visited them. Would suggest bhpians to try this one if it permits.

Another pump probably IOC/HPCL is located at the Akansha more on newtown MAR. As you cross city centre 2 going towards salt lake the first roundabout known as Akansha more take left to the service road then turn right immediately about 50metres into the road and drive straight you should be able to spot the petrol pump. It is pretty small and neatly hidden and inconspicuous but the quality of petrol they dole out is pretty good. Avoid the assam oil petrol pump on newtown MAR coming towards airport from narkelbagan side just before chinar park crossing. Their quality is good but too lax and give preferences to bikes and other two wheelers rather than cars/trucks.

Another pump I'd highly recommend is the IOCL pump by the name of Dwaraka Service Station situated bang in the front of St. Stephen's School,Dum Dum. It is on the road from airport gate no. 1 towards nagerbazaar on the right hand side. The attendants are prompt and courteous and the fuel quality has been consistently good since the last 10years I've used them. If any bhpian in this part of kolkata has used their service kindly provide some feedback.

There is a Bharat Petroleum Pump near Unitech in Rajarhat where I fill regularly. No complaints.

And another one will be in Chinar Park - Bharat Petroleum. Dunno but I feel BP/IOC gives better mileage than HP.

I stay very close and was a regular there. Do surely recommend it. Still visit them at times. But nowadays I prefer the BP pump almost on the opposite side of the road. I feel that it is also an equally good one and the staffs there are more helpful and courteous.

Today I checked out the company-owned-company-operated (COCO) BP Petrol pump in Newtown, near the Tata Medical Centre. The staff there were very courteous, greeted us with huge smiles on their faces.

The significant new information I got is that they fill Nitrogen. This is very convenient for me, since I live nearby. However, they don't have the Speed97 although I am not sure if ever I will need the 97 petrol.

They are open 24 hours - good to know.

Yes the service there is quite courteous, I know as I fill from them quite regularly en route or way back from my office at Unitech.
Be aware that in the late evening, there are a lot of trucks filling up in that pump, so you may encounter a traffic jam of sorts.
Also, sometimes they are understaffed and you may have to wait a while for the queue to progress.
